K. of P. hall was well tilled on Tues
day evening by enons who had been
invited by Willamette Falls Camp No.
143 of the Woodmen of tho World to be
presi'iit upon that occasion for the pur
pose ot seeing the otllcera of the camp
installed. A literary program by local
talent had also been prepared to make
the evening pass more pleasantly for the
families of members who were present
and for the invited guests. State IKipiity
Head Counsel C. A. Wheeler was pres
ent but delegated the work ot installation
toC. Y. Cooper, past consul commander
of Multnomah camp No. 107 of Portland,
who perfoi med that duly in a verv im
pressive and able manner. The otlicers
installed were as follows: E. M. Hands,
consul commander; E. (.. Farnsworth,
vice-consul; Otto F. Olson, banker; K.
M. Mack, escort; E. K. Martin, clerk;
S. W. Morgan, mannger, P. G. Wells,
sentinel and C. lloberg watchman.
The program consisted of the opening
ode sung by the camp which was fol
lowed by a pretty piece of instrumental
music by Mrs. F. F. White. The next
on the program was an address of wel
come by IV. W. K. Carll, but he had
been called away to visit a patient so in
behalf of the camp E. M. Rands wel
comed those present to the entertain
ment and installation. Miss Mullie
Wilkinson tlien sang in a sweet voice a
beautiful so!n which was much enjoved.
This was followed by an address by
Deputy Head Consul, C. A. Wheeler
who gave a brief history of Wo'xlcraft
and dwelt upon the importance ot its
benefits to the bereaved family in pro
viding for the loved ones when the head
of the family is laid to rest. After the
address the otlicers of the camp were
installed and then the Alldredge brothers
sang a quartette which was loudly ap
plauded by the audience. Miss Ella
Hoberg's vocal solo and the instrumental
duet by Miss Ella lloberg and Master Se-
wald Toepleman accompatiieet on the vio
lin were most excellent and called forth
hearty and merited applause.
The address of C. Y. Cooper was
earnestly listened to and as he showed the J
benefits, social and financial, the first
to the member and the second to his
family, many thought more seriously of
their duty in the way of preparing now
for the future, either by joining the
Woodmen or some kindred organization.
The Oregon City (ilee Club sang in
fine style that popular piece concerning
the bull frog, the bull dog and other
kindred animals and found themselves
ealled to the stage again after once
taking their seats, as did also the All
dredge brothers who sang a Negro melody
which was so popular as to make their
second appearance necessary. Following
this the visitors and those assisting in
the entertainment were thanked for
their presence and ti.nely help after
which all united in singing the closing

Judge Ricks, of the United States cir

decision in the suit of the Edison Elec

The Telegram of Wednesday contains
the following: "Two highwaymen made
a big haul on the road between Milwau
kee and Minthorne, nearly IS miles
back of Milkaukee, about noon Sunday.
E. W. Cressey, an old man residing
in a tumble-down shack, on the little
neck of land lying between the pond
and the river, at Milwaukee, was roblied
of $tlOU in gold coin by two masked men.
The old man is about 75 years old, and
lives entirely alone. He is retorted
very wealthy, and is suppotied to have
considerable money hidden away in dif
ferent places near his home, and for
several days he has been liying at a hotel
in Milwaukee. Before leaving his little
neck ot land, however, he dug out ot a
hiding place in the ground 30, f JO gold
pieces, which he secreted in his clothing.
' The old fellow is an inveterate walker,
being in the habit of taking long ram
bles on the country roads daily, audit
was while out for one of these strolls that
be was robbed of his gold.
The story as the old man told ft to
gentleman living in Milwatikie, is that
near the water tank at Minthorne, as he
was walking toward Milwaukee, he
chanced to look back, and saw two
marked men running toward him. As
the old fellow is generally considered to
have money, he is always suspicious,
and immediately decided he was the in
tended victim of l he muxked men, kikI
prepared to defend himself and his
I money, so he turned lo face the high
waymen, but lw wjs no match fer them.
One he describes as s very large man,
dressed in laborer' clothes and wearing
a black cloth mask. The other was
rather under medium size and dressed
in much the same style. His raised

Rev, V, A. Willlson formerly preached
in this city so that he and his family
were well known hero. Tho following
rvKt from tho Portland papers will
doubtless prove at the same time sad
and interesting reading:
"The death of Miss Lillian Willlson at
tho Women's Home early Wednesday
morning brums to a close a touching
story, in which the heartless desertion
by a father ot his dying daughter is oil set
by devoted sisterly slbclion. The de
ceased was the eldest daughter of Itev,
Mr. Willlson, whose ministrations In
small chinches throughout the valley
still fresh in the m'tuls ol those who
knew him, but who left this city a few
mouths ago under a cloud ami is now
suniMxted to be living a disreputable life
somewhere in the Fast. Mr. Willlson
left his three daughters, ot which the
oldest was but 21, without any provision
for their support. Their little home In
Piedmont was heavily mortgaged, ami
was soon afterward sold, together with
their household effects, to meet the
obligation. Miss I.llliun was in the last
stage of consumption, and required the
constant care of her younger sister,
Louise. Rev. Mr. Forties interested
himself in the case, and a small sum,
raised through his efforts, was sulllcient
to secure for them cheau quarters at the
Women's Home. The destitute girls
could not afford even a fire in their
room, and Miss Lillian was obliged to
go witnout those dellcies in the way ot
nourishment which her condition re
quired. About the time their scanty
means were sgain exhausted. Rev. Mr.
Forbes was taken sick, and was power
less to render them any further assistance.
Rev. A. J. Brown then liecame interested
in the case, and related the cirenm-
.atancea to the committee having In
charge the elevator cash-hox fund. The
result was that $15 was donated at mice
tothe relict of the girls, and accomplished
so much goes! that a second donation ot
$15 was made afew days w. This sum,
although small, wss sulllcient not only
to relieve actual w ant in the home ot the
dying girl, hut to surround her with
comfort that had be n almost unknown

times, (in Tuesday the teachei went to

were punching in dead earnest and it
was evident that it was a fight for blood.

Another populist paper lias gone tired,
and the Reform Journal of I'ortland now
lies with several kindred journals in the
graveyard of hope long deferred. It was
the best conducted and most tenacious
of the reform papers, but receipts and
exenditures did not meet by
thousand dollars and it had to follow the
other two which had preceded it within
the year. The Salem Daily Independent
has ceased to run as a populist paper and
is now conducted on a co-operative plan
upon an independent line, while the
semi-weekly Independent will be devoted
to the cause of the populists. Governor
Pennoyer, who was backing the Inde
pendent, is reported to have withdrawn
his support from that quarter and trans
ferred it to the paper in this city which
is to become bis personal organ.
